VMware vCenter Server Appliance Deployment Hung: Installed iPXE-1.0.0-1.2882051.vmw.i686.rpm

When installing an instance of a VMware vSphere vCenter Server virtual appliance, version 6.0 Update 1, I ran into an issue who's cause wasn't very apparent. While deploying the vCSA through Google Chrome, the process hung at the following step: Installed iPXE-1.0.0-1.2882051.vmw.i686.rpm.

vCenter Server Deployment error: Installed iPXE-1.0.0-1.2882051.vmw.i686.rpm

The deployment log files are located at: C:\Users\vmwareUser\AppData\Local\VMware\CIP\vcsaInstaller\sessions\session_0004\logs. The logs gave no indication of the problem.

This was ultimately due to an incorrect configuration within DNS. The DNS entry was not setup for the vCSA. After creating the correct DNS entry and restarting the deployment, it completed successfully.

The actual version installed was
Veeam Backup and Replication

Version does not support VMware vCenter and ESXi 6.0, vSphere 6 support was added with Veeam Backup & Replication 8 Update 2. Update 3 is now available can be be downloaded from the following link: Veeam Backup & Replication 8.0 Update 3.

After installing the update, I was able to connect Veeam Backup & Replication 8.0 to ESXi 6.0 Update 1 hosts.

Veeam does not modify their download links as updates are released. As of today, the current downloadable version is still Note that they do include a link to a Update 3 on the download page. If installing a new copy of Backup and Recovery for use with vSphere 6.0 products, first install Backup & Replication, then install Update 3.
